What I did tonight

I like these so much I keep Baker's chocolate squares on hand so that I can make them whenever I have a craving. I've adapted the recipe to be the one that follows. I like peanut butter chips, but you can throw anything in there... I've been known to throw in chopped-up peppermint patties for a mint-chocolate lover...

Joannie's Take On Baker's One Bowl Chocolate Bliss Cookies

1 pkg (8 squares) of Baker's Semi-Sweet Baking chocolate
3/4 c firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 c butter, slightly softened
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 c flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 pkg of peanut butter chips

PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Microwave 8 chocolate squares in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 min., stirring after 1 min. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Add sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla; stir until well blended. Add flour and baking powder; mix well. Stir in peanut butter chips.
DROP rounded tablespoonfuls of dough, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased baking sheets. (I make mine on my baking stone.)
BAKE 12 to 13 min. or until cookies are puffed and shiny. Cool 1 min.; remove from baking sheets to wire racks. Cool completely.

Oh, and here's a picture of my creations tonight. If I owned a restaurant, I'd say on my menu:
"pairs nicely with a Guinness"
